'We're winning the lot': Some Man City fans rejoice as club announce first signing of the window

Man City have confirmed their first signing of the window as Scott Carson joins the club on a permanent basis.

The goalkeeper had been at City for the past two seasons on loan from Derby County.

However, with Carson becoming a free agent this summer, the Premier League champions have now added the veteran shot-stopper permanently on a one-year contract.

“To be around Pep and his backroom staff is fantastic and I feel I have learnt so much since I joined in 2019.”

The 35-year-old added: “To commit for another year was such an easy decision. I want to continue pushing the other goalkeepers we have here and I want to make sure my experience rubs off on them.”

Here’s what some fans had to say on Twitter about Carson signing for Man City…
